Key Stage 4

In KS4 students can gain an insight into the world of work within the hair, beauty and care industry. Students follow a programme designed by the vocational education department which allows them to investigate various career opportunities and develop their knowledge of these sectors.

In Years 10 and 11 students at New College Leicester can study City and Guilds Level 2 Technical Award in Hair and Beauty Studies (3038-21) and BTEC Level 2 First Award in Health and Social Care.

These subjects allow the student to gain knowledge and understanding of the two sectors ready for employment. Many of the skills learnt are transferable to many other industries.

We follow a scheme of work which is designed by the awarding body in both areas which is modified specifically for our students.
